Olivia and her new ipod
Christmas Eve

Christmas morning at 5:30 am

We had a great first Christmas with Makenna. She had fun and we all enjoyed seeing her face full of excitement at each new thing. Olivia and Jackson said it was the best Christmas ever! Last year on Christmas we were matched with Fu Yan Hao by the CCAA and we saw her face for the first time 4 days later. So happy she is home now:)

Christmas card picture attempts

Okay there were actually many more pictures. This was just a sample. I obviously was so caught up in trying to get them in the picture I didn't even adjust the camera so there would be no red eye and blurriness. The third one would be my choice but it is soooooo blurry! In my mind the three kids would put on their Christmas pjs and all smile and look cute for a Christmas card picture. Well........ they all managed to look cute but, we will have to try again tonight to get a photo we can use. Makenna is still a challenge to photograph. She is in constant motion and doesn't care if she looks or smiles. She does what SHE wants. I keep reminding myself that being strong-willed and independent are good qualities :)
Wish me luck.
